Could I get some advice/assistance from someone who knows about electrical/LEDs?

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
Hey there, I just installed 4 white LEDs into my Thermalright X Silent fan and hoping someone can look over what I did.

The LEDs I bought were pre-wired with a resistor on them. I wired them in a series around the fan and soldered it in the middle to the red and black wires. It works great and looks awesome!

Did I do this properly? Are those LEDs I linked above safe to use 24/7 the way I hooked it up?

I really wish I looked into this more before I did, so I kind of feel like an idiot.

thanks for your time

You should have them in parallel idealy, but, you shouldnt have them in parallel with one single resistor, series is fine..but if one led goes they will all go out.
